As chief executive officer of BP, Tony Hayward presided over the worst oil spill in U.S. history, which led the company to take $41 billion in charges. Now he’s preparing to immerse himself in the energy industry again. Hayward stepped down as BP’s CEO on Oct.1 , 2010, after being roundly attacked for comments he made the previous spring, as the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico was still spewing oil. “No one wants this thing over more than I do,” he said. “You know, I would like my life back.” The N.Y. Daily News called Hayward “the most hated—and the most clueless—man in America.”
